Born in the UK, but have lived in Connecticut and New York for some years. I grew up on glam rock and pop music, but have diverged into a lot of other styles. My primary love in music is the annual event known as the Eurovision Song Contest - an over the top contest between 40+ European countries, and the longest running annual TV event in the world. I write for a number of UK outlets about the contest, but my day job is as the head of HR for a Energy company. Some of my favourite bands and performers are Abba, Erasure, Soft Cell, Marc Almond, The Pet Shop Boys, Queen, Kiss, Japan, David Sylvian, Kate Bush, Depeche Mode, Jayne County, Conchita, Redd Kross.
